The Smart One!
We all hated that smart kid in the class who always had the answers! (Truth be told, I was kinda that kid.) Well, I’m sure all the other Lamptron products are sick of how smart the CP530 is. Intelligent fan control sounds intriguing, but what makes this product unique is that it is purely hardware based. We’ll check it out soon, but first let’s look at a statement again from Lamptron.
Lamptron develops and markets the next generation of high performance computer peripherals using the latest technology that enables a new level of interaction between the end-user and their personal computer.
Get ready for some déjà vu . The packaging for the CP530 is nearly identical to the CE420 we recently reviewed. The box has a nice sleeve that adequately advertises the product, and the inside has a nice layer of protective foam for shipping protection. It’s a great job from Lamptron.
The CE420 jammed the accessories in the spare spaces around the controller and I saw the same approach on this unit. It comes with a host of extension cables to make it easier to reach all fans in the case. Packaging them in a bag would make everything seem more organized, but Lamptron is also trying to save on expenses. Still, I really appreciate the included magnet and I’ll address more on that soon. The package is definitely reusable in case you ever want to resell the product.
